Life

This is part of Fantasy and Sci-Fi Week at Gorgon Reviews! Look, I am a big fan of all of these classic board games being turned into movies. Clue is the golden standard, and that was over thirty years ago. So why not a movie about the board game Life? The good news about Life …

Mr. Holmes

Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbander have an interesting thing in common. Fassbender has played two different roles that McKellen has more famously played before him.

The Wolverine

I went in to see The Wolverine with one thing on my mind. It couldn’t be worse than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. What a terrible movie. Maybe the worst big comic movie since Superman Returns. Basically, the bar is set pretty low. So as long as the plot makes sense and there are some decent action scenes, …
